cooling units
About the cooling unit
The single packaged electric cooling unit is a high efficient
self contained appliance that will cool your home and provide
energy saving comfort. Additional features and benefits of the
cooling include:
• Indoor and outdoor coils are designed to optimize heat transfer,
minimize size and cost, and increase durability and reliability.
• Environmentally friendly R-410A Refrigerant.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Thermostat styles vary. Some models may not include the
AUTO mode and others will have the AUTO in place of the
HEAT and COOL. Others may include all three. Please refer
to the thermostat manufacturer’s User manual for detailed
programming instructions.
The thermostat should be mounted about 5 feet above the floor
on an inside wall and not on an outside wall or other location
where its operation may be adversely affected by radiant heat
from fireplaces, sunlight, or lighting fixtures, and convective heat
from warm air registers or electrical appliances.
Cooling Operation - 1 or 2-Stage Operation
1. Set the thermostat system mode to COOL and the thermostat
fan mode to AUTO. See Figure 1.
2. Set the thermostat temperature selector to the desired
temperature level. The outdoor fan, compressor, and
indoor blower will all cycle on and off to maintain the indoor
temperature at the desired cooling level.
Heating Operation - Optional Electric Heat
1. Set the thermostat system mode to Heat and the thermostat
fan mode to AUTO. See Figure 1.
2. Set the thermostat temperature selector to the desired
temperature level. The indoor blower or electric heat module
will cycle on and off to maintain the indoor temperature at
the desired heating level.
System Shutdown
Set the thermostat system mode to OFF and the thermostat fan
mode to AUTO. See Figure 1. NOTE: The system will not operate,
regardless of the thermostat temperature selector’s setting.
Operating the Indoor Blower Continuously
Set the thermostat fan mode to ON (or CONT on some thermostat
models). See Figure 1.
The indoor blower will start immediately, and will run continually
until the fan mode is reset to AUTO.
The continuous indoor blower operation can be obtained with
the thermostat system mode set in any position, including OFF.
The continuous indoor blower operation is typically used to
circulate the indoor air to equalize a temperature imbalance due
to a solar load, cooking, or fireplace operation.
NOTES:
• On some select models, if the cooling level is not satisifed
by the thermostat in stage 1, the thermostat will initiate
to stage 2 and the indoor blower will ramp to a higher
speed.
• If the temperature level is re-adjusted, or the system mode
is reset, the fan and compressor in the outdoor unit may
not start immediately. There may be a protective timer
circuit in the thermostat which holds the compressor and
the outdoor fan off for approximately 5 minutes following a
previous operation or the interruption of the main electrical
power.

heat pump Units
About the Heat Pump
Your heat pump is a unique, all weather comfort-control appliance
that will heat and cool your building year round and provide
energy saving comfort. It’s an unknown fact that heat is always
in the air, even when the outside temperature is below freezing.
The heat pump uses basic laws of physics to provide energy
saving heat during the winter months.
In colder temperatures, the heat pump performs like an air
conditioner run in reverse. Available heat energy outside the
building is absorbed by the refrigerant and exhausted inside.
This efficient process means you only pay for “moving” the heat
from the outdoors to the indoor area. You do not pay to generate
the heat, as is the case with more traditional furnace designs.
During summer, the heat pump reverses the flow of the heatabsorbing refrigerant to become an energy-efficient, central air
conditioner. Excess heat energy inside the home is absorbed
by the refrigerant and exhausted outside the building.
Operating Instructions
Thermostat styles vary. Some models will not include the AUTO
mode and others will have the AUTO in place of the HEAT
and COOL. Others may include all three. Please refer to the
thermostat manufacturer’s User Manual for detailed programming
instructions.
The thermostat should be mounted about 5 feet above the floor
on an inside wall and not on an outside wall or other location
where its operation may be adversely affected by radiant heat
from fireplaces, sunlight, or lighting fixtures, and convective heat
from warm air registers or electrical appliances.
NOTE: If the temperature level is re-adjusted, or the system mode
is reset, the fan and compressor in the outdoor unit may not
start immediately. A protective timer circuit holds the compressor
and the outdoor fan off for approximately 5 minutes following a
previous operation or the interruption of the main electrical power.
Cooling Operation (1 or 2 Stage Operation)
1. Set the thermostat system mode to COOL and the thermostat
fan mode to AUTO. See Figure 1.
2. Set the thermostat temperature selector to the desired
temperature level. The outdoor fan, compressor, and
indoor blower will all cycle on and off to maintain the indoor
temperature at the desired cooling level.
NOTE: On some select models, if the cooling level is not
satisifed by the thermostat in stage 1, the thermostat will
initiate to stage 2 and the indoor blower will ramp to a higher
speed.
Heating Operation - Heat Pump Mode
1. Set the thermostat’s system mode to HEAT or AUTO and
change the fan mode to AUTO. See Figure 1 (pg 3).
2. Set the temperature selector to the desired temperature
level. The compressor, outdoor fan, and blower motor will
cycle on and off to maintain the indoor temperature at the
desired heating level.
NOTES:
• If the heating level is not satisifed by the thermostat in
stage 1, the thermostat will initiate to stage 2 and the
indoor blower will ramp to a higher speed.
• On some thermostats, if the heating load on the conditioned
space is not met in a normal period of time or the difference
between the thermostat set point and room temperature
4
is large, the heat pump will automatically shut off and the
electric heat will operate until the thermostat demand for
heat is met.
Emergency Heat - Electric Heat mode
Heat pump thermostats include a system mode called EM HT
or AUX HT, etc. This is a back-up heating mode that should only
be used if a problem is suspected. With the mode set to EM
HT, etc., the compressor and outdoor fan will be locked off and
electric heat will be used as a source of heat. Sustained use of
electric heat in place of the heat pump will result in an increase
in this utility cost. Refer to the thermostat manual for more info.
Defrost Operation
During cold weather heating operation, the outdoor unit will
develop a coating of snow and ice on the heat transfer coil. This
is normal and the unit will defrost itself. This unit will monitor
ambient and coil temperatures to regulate the defrost function
accordingly.
At the beginning of the defrost cycle, both the outdoor condenser
fan and compressor will turn off. After approximately 30 seconds,
the compressor will turn on and begin to heat the outdoor coil
causing the ice and snow to melt.
During the defrost period, the electric heat will energize and
produce warm air to offset the heat pump operation while in its
reverse cycle. Initially the air out of the supply registers may
be slightly cooler since the heat pump has reversed its cycle
and is now in the cooling mode to aide in the defrosting of the
outdoor coil. The air will rise in temperature as the electric heat
continues to operate.
NOTE: While the ice and snow is melting, some steam may
rise from the outdoor unit as the warm coil causes the melting
frost to evaporate. When defrost is completed, the outdoor
fan motor will start, and the compressor will turn off again. In
approximately 30 seconds the compressor will start up again
and continue normal operation. The electric heat will shut down
at the end of the defrost cycle.
Automatic Cooling & Heating Operation
1. Set the thermostat system mode to AUTO and the thermostat
fan mode to AUTO. See Figure 1 (page 3).
2. Set the thermostat’s temperature selector to the desired
heating and cooling temperature level(s). The outdoor unit
and the indoor blower will then cycle on and off in either
the heating or cooling mode of operation as required to
automatically maintain the indoor temperature within the
desired limits.
Operating the Indoor Blower Continuously
The continuous indoor blower operation is typically used to
circulate the indoor air to equalize a temperature imbalance
due to a solar load, cooking, or fireplace operation. Set the
thermostat fan mode (Figure 1) to ON (or CONT on some
thermostat models). The indoor blower will start immediately,
and will run continually until the fan mode is reset to AUTO.
The continuous indoor blower operation can be obtained with
the thermostat system mode set in any position, including OFF.
System Shutdown
Set the thermostat system mode (Figure 1) to OFF and the
thermostat fan mode to AUTO. NOTE: The system will not operate,
regardless of the thermostat temperature selector’s setting.
